CEA Paris Center

Etablissement d'enseignement supérieur privé

The CEA Paris Center, located in the heart of the Marais district, was founded in 2005 in order to provide North American students with a curriculum that emphasizes disciplinary study appropriate to Paris: art history, political science, communication study, & international business. Students are expected to participate actively in their courses and draw connections between the subjects they are studying and the city. Faculty selected to teach at the CEA Paris Center utilize Paris as an extended classroom in such a way that students not only acquire discipline-specific knowledge, but also create intellectual links between their courses and the city. As such all courses will help students familiarize themselves with their new surroundings in Paris and gain insight into how France fits into a globalized context.

Courses taught at the CEA Paris Center have been designed in conjunction with, and approved by, the University of New Haven (UNH).* In addition, faculty appointments have been approved by UNH. After the successful completion of a session at the CEA Paris Center, students will receive a UNH transcript for their work. Located in Connecticut, the University of New Haven is a student-focused, comprehensive university and is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). The agreement between CEA and UNH follows the highest standards of good practice in education abroad and satisfies the rigorous requirements of the University's institutional accreditor. Therefore, credits earned at the CEA Paris Center are easily transferable to US-accredited institutions.Learn more about UNH serving as the University of Record for CEA.

Completion of a course is defined as a receipt of a letter grade (A+ to F) as opposed to Withdrawal or Incomplete.

In order to determine a quality point ratio, each letter grade from a completed course is assigned a quality point value. The quality point value for each grade earned during a semester is multiplied by the number of semester hours assigned to that course. The sum of these points is the total number of quality points earned during the semester. It is divided by the number of semester hours completed to obtain the quality point ratio (QPR).
